Eisheth

In the Kabbalah, Eisheth Zenunim (Heb. אֵשֶׁת זְנוּנִים, "Woman of Whoredom") is a princess of the Qliphoth who rules Sathariel, the order of the Qliphoth of Binah.[1] She is found in the Zohar 1:5a-b as "isheth zennanim" or "qodeshah." In Jewish mythology, she is said to eat the souls of the damned.

In Jacqueline Carey's Kushiel's Legacy saga, Eisheth is one of eight angels who follow Elua. She was noted for being gentle. Her province is Eisande.

Eisheth is also a video game character in Kushiel's Debut.
